August 4, 1923 ~ March 23, 2022 (age 98)


HICKEY, Edmund F. Jr. 98 of Seaford, DE died peacefully at home on March 23, 2022. Edmund was born in Atlanta, GA, raised in Oklahoma City and relocated to Seaford as a teenager where he met his wife, Eleanor. Edmund and Eleanor celebrated their 77th anniversary on January 6th of this year. Edmund (Ed) retired from DuPont in 1984 after forty years of service. He had a very long and enjoyable retirement traveling, fishing and crabbing, building or fixing just about anything and following NASCAR every Sunday. Most of all, he cherished his time with his extensive family.  

Edmund is survived by his beloved wife Eleanor and their six children Guy and wife Cindy, Jill White and husband David, Susan Borja and partner John, Donna Lynn and husband Leo, Keith and wife Susie, and Teddy and wife Susan. No one worked harder to provide for all of us than “Daddy”, building our family home while on shift work in his 20’s. Additionally, he is survived by his brother Robert and wife Tad, nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren who will all treasure his memories.

The family will have a private graveside service in Seaford on Monday, March 28th. There will be a celebration of life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers the family ask contributions be made in Edmund’s memory to The Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, DE 19963.
